The world is descending into digital madness. There's no better time to think for yourself
Hi Joe, I enjoy your Substack and also watch you on WarRoom all the time. Maybe someone already mentioned it and I missed it, but one of the possible scenarios you mention was the subject of a novel trilogy written over 50 years ago. The first book in the trlogy is titled, “Colossus” and was first published in 1966. That book was made into a TV movie in 1970 titled “Colossus: The Forbin Project.” The author, D.F. Jones, wrote the two sequels in the 1970s.
The author was prescient, he presents in a now very plausible story what could happen if computers take over the world. What he wrote is more relevant today than when he wrote the books. It is amazing how forward looking he was in seeing the potential dangers of advanced computer technology.
These books, especially the first one and the movie, would be well worth your time to read. Their message complements all the things you say every day on Steve Bannon’s show and in your Substack articles. I hope you take the time to look them up, and would be interested in hearing your reaction.
Congratulations, Joe. I hope the book is a bestseller. ♥
Congratulations on the book!
My concern is about Governing Ai in politics.
Looking forward to the book! We'll have to have you back on MindMatters again to discuss it.
I am looking forward to the book! Should be excellent...
As usual, very thoughtful piece. I'm looking forward to reading your book. Keep up the great work!
I am really looking forward to reading your book.
As always, great writing JoeBot. Really looking foward to your upcoming book release! Congrats.☺️
(Am sharing your articles with as many friends as possible, my brothers and also a brother in law. I know they’ll appreciate your deep thinking and excellent writing).
Thxs again for all you do to keep us informed.
Wow, this is great, JoeBot. Thanks for keeping us up to date. I'm looking forward to your book.
Hey Joe, I believe you are a precious and intelligent child of God but, I got to ask, how do you maintain your faith and sanity? Your articles are so disturbing, they haunt me.
Good afternoon Joe! I think I’ve made myself clear enough as to my thoughts on where this type of research heads humanity at large. Their incursion into common social media channels would be analogous to fish hatchery “Brood Ponds”, only these subsequent AI tainted channels where great numbers come to consume the agreeable “Thought Free Content”, become incapable making decisions for themselves, & are susceptible to whatever the current Mind Virus or Mass Psychosis De Jur, in circulation. If predicting the length of time that these AI experiments will take before they become a threat, then now might be a good time for this to cease, so long as adequate safeguards are in place to penalize those that don’t, with heavy consequences for their outlaw research, sufficient enough to assure them of a future where no further research is possible.
As always you have gotten to the point rather excellently. I am excited to read your book, which as you know, I have been encouraging you to create for some time. Stay well and may the Lord keep you in His care and healthy.
Oh and huge congrats!
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 KJV — And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
I'm curious.... Why am I the only one pointing to that passage? It's only been around for 2,000 years. This is much more than a wake-up call, folks.... it's a last-call.
I think it's too late. Pandora shut the barn door after letting out the genie that spilt the milk, etc.
1) Arms racing dynamics. If we don't do it, China/Russia will.
2) The motives of some calling for a moratorium may be less than noble.
3) AI can improve itself without humans.
I think current AI is still understandable and moderately stupid.
However, near-future versions of self-constructed AI will be opaque to humans. Strange times ...
